The Perfect Bridal Shower Cake

This is truly a sweet and thoughtful cake for a bride-to-be.  This cake was a replica of the bride's gorgeous wedding dress, part of the Jasmine Bridal line.

I had so much fun making this cake, although I worried about the proportions.  There had to be enough cake to feed 20, but I also didn't want to make the bride too.... hippy....

I had to make the bust out of sugarpaste a week before, so that it would dry properly.  I'm so happy that it was the perfect size and shape since I didn't make a back-up in a different size.

Isn't this such a Sweet Thing?

Cake Decorator's Tip:  This is not an easy cake to make, depending on the design of the dress because you don't want any unnecessary lines.  I had to put the fondant on 3 times to get it right.  And I would definitely suggest making a back-up bust in a different size, just in case.

It must've been so hard to put that fondant over the bust you made - I'm still trying to figure out how that is done without it ripping....
